P.S. anyone want to point me at the best site to make a Windows XP boot USB?
(Yes I do have more than one spare unused valid Microsoft Windows XP license that I will use)

I found one a while back that worked.  Couldn't find it again recently when I needed it though, the ones I found wouldn't work properly.  Ended up yanking my DVDROM drive out of one PC and attaching it long enough to install XP.

Do you mean a live (PE, Preinstalled Environment) USB, or just an installer? If a PE is enough, Microsoft provides a free Win7 one with the WIAK (Windows Automated Installation Kit), but it is a massive download. Oops, it requires a Windows install just to create the boot ISO before using it lol.

XP is kind of difficult to install via USB, but there are a few guides on the net. If you want a pre-tweaked version, this is a good one: ...

I thought warez was illegal on this forum ?

Content like this can get bitcointalk.org banned under laws like SOPA / PIPA ...
It isn't warez if you have a key.
No I don't need the disks.
I have originals of those also (and real licenses I own, as I mentioned above)
Just a guide to make a USB that someone has used that didn't require much thinking Smiley

Though, I would suggest removing that link from the posts (bulanula also) since a TPB link isn't ideal to ever post anywhere Smiley

Edit: also probably better to just PM me if anyone has a suggestion

Not sure why not, but I edited my post accordingly. Unfortunately Mr. B can't edit it out.

Yeah, the oppressive governments with communistic tendencies. And that law was passed by a corrupt judge. Fuck them.
